How will Daniel Craig morph into buff, blond Bond for the next 007 installment, which begins shooting this winter in the Alps, Panama and South Africa?
“I train by drinking myself stupid. I’ve put on three stone [42 lbs.],” Craig – who’s signed to play the role in the next four James Bond movies – joked to the UK’s Total Film magazine in its December issue.
In a more sober vein, the 39-year-old went on to admit: “I try to keep myself in shape. The only reason I do it is I know that when I really have to get myself in shape for the next movie, it’s going to be really hard unless I keep going.” – Courtney Rubin
